All,

What is the point of buy the property under the house or town center?

Also, is there a reason to buy property under the town center before the game starts?

Thx,
jonpfl

You'll make 2 points at the end of the game, and only buildings you own (apart from the general store) can benefit from the house/city center if you own it.

Similar benefits apply to buying a parcel containing a mountain: it gives you 2 points at the end of the game (and 1 at the end of each round in which you have the Settler's red side), and it denies the mountain's benefits to adjacent mines owned by opponents.

This is a really important point. This game is about making money and converting to points as efficiently as possible. You can be buying up mountains for a few usd on the last turn. Can be really useful in the right situation.

Do people generally get the city center square with one of their initial placements though?

If I can ... I tend to grab it. Tends to be based on what buildings are also on the track and where you are in the start of game que. You have to look at what character cards are available too ... it's not easy to answer.

This question was discussed in the following recent thread: Taking the city center tile first
